Tiivistelmä

The paper proposes analytical definitions of moderate inversion and moderate saturation. These definitions are introduced considering two different series expansions for the function ln2(x). The expansions are “matched”: the upper limit for convergence of the first series and the lower limit for convergence of the second series define the border and transition from weak to moderate inversion/saturation. The moderate inversion/saturation corresponds to approximation of the function ln2(x) by a modified sum of two first terms of the second series. Then, the condition of inversion/saturation is defined by dominance of one term with respect to another. The condition of moderate inversion/saturation is a necessary step in transition from weak to strong inversion/saturation. The introduced definitions correspond to MOS transistor operation physics and eliminate discontinuity in this transition.
